IDI is a UK registered charity and the positive work we do across the world simply wouldn't be possible without the kind support of our donors. Watch our video below to learn more about how IDI promotes Jewish knowledge, Israel engagement and mental well-being through our work with Israeli culture and then listen to more testimonies from our beneficiaries.
Nurturing The Flame - How IDI promotes Jewish identity and Israel engagement:
OUR WORLDWIDE IMPACT
RESEARCH & PRODUCTION OF MATERIALS
IDI produces dance materials related to Jewish Festivals and educational topics (e.g. the environment, peace, Jerusalem, Respect and Dignity, Colours of Israel, Bereishit - Creation) as well as general materials for use by folk dance teachers. IDI has now produced a 'core curriculum' for use in schools.
WORKSHOPS & COURSES
IDI runs occasional Sunday workshops and the Machol Europa summer course, providing an opportunity for teachers and enthusiasts from the UK and over 20 countries worldwide to come and learn together and share their passion for Israeli dance. IDI also runs INSET (In-service Training) for school teachers.
IDI sponsors performing troupes: Oranim;
Alonim; Nitzanim & Nevatim, which perform at many inter-faith and multi-cultural events as well as at functions for the Jewish community. They provide a community outreach function, introducing
thousands of people each year to the vibrant nature of Israeli and Jewish dance.
